University of Alberta

I'm a geologist and hyperspectral imaging specialist. I recently completed my PhD at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. My SERC contributions to date stem from geoscience education research I conducted as an undergraduate at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Dr. Leslie Reid. I'm passionate about adult education and course design and am always looking for interesting projects - find me on LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/michellespeta
